Pastel hues are synonymous with spring, but they aren’t all about being cutesy and tranquil. These days, Allure magazine reports that more people are opting for edgy pastels for everything from their clothing to makeup. That being said, what exactly are “power pastels” and how can you wear them without looking too bold?
“Power pastels” can be simply defined as bright shades such as cotton candy pink and mint green that have an ample amount of pigment. Gone are the days when ladies played it safe with baby blue and girly pink for their ensembles! More importantly, these colors are showing up in makeup as well. Models and celebrities are being seen with vivid pastels on their lids as they pose for the public.
If you want to take advantage of this trend, Harper’s Bazaar magazine recommends opting for shades such as lavender and rose as you revamp your makeup collection. Focusing on one area of your face, such as your pout, is a good idea if you’re too nervous to go bold with color around your entire face. Play around with different shades of lipstick until you find one that complements your skin tone.
